This is my card for Friday's challenge - Make a card with the word sweet in it and a Sweet Tooth theme. This card has a much more important purpose though. It is for Jason, a 3rd grader battling Leukemia. Jan (California Girl) who did such wonderful things for Eliza and is a school teacher is tutoring Jason in his home (at no charge, I might add) because his immune system is such that he can't attend school. He spends a good part of his time in a Children's Hospital.
Jan is a cancer survivor, a caring person and needs our help. Please check out her request for help here. Take a minute to reorganize, clean, or just identify some scrapbooking supplies you can donate to some young children! Here it is: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=202220
Thanks for helping Jan and her fellow school teacher and friend. By the way, I am going to fill the little pocket with M & M's and send a bag of M & M's with the card and my donation of supplies.

I'm in tears because you care so much about Jason, even though you haven't met him. Everyone who knows him will tell you what a neat kid he really is. He will be back in Children's Hospital this week and I'm sure your card will brighten his day!
You're an angel!
